Performance

I absoutely loved this bootleg. A reason for downloading it was because it's my hometown. I step out of my house, get a bus and can go straight to Edinburgh Playhouse. I wish I was born to see this performance because it was outstanding just from listening to it. It shows that they were always good at doing live. "Live is where we live" which was once said by Larry Mullen and he's absoutely correct.

When Sunday Bloody Sunday came on, everyone went bonkers! The crowd were insane and they had every right to be because this performance was sublime.


Sound

The sound wasn't perfect but it was excellent. Good enough to hear's U2 astonishing Edinburgh performance!
Recording: "Unforgettable Scots" - 4 stars

Audience

All I can say is that it was a Scottish crowd and they go crazy at any concert, especially when it's a U2 concert! You can tell that absoutely everyone who was there loved this!

Overall

I really enjoyed this bootleg. I could easily feel this was from Edinburgh, just by listening to it.

Highlights
------------
11 O' Clock Tick Tock (such an amazing start!)
I Will Follow (the crowd were too good)
The Unforgettable Fire (performed brilliantly)
Two Hearts Beat As One (best I've ever heard)
A Sort of Homecoming (heard a better version but was still great)
Sunday Bloody Sunday (best song performed, crowd were crazy!)
New Year's Day (was a good sing-a-long)
